The Poets on Poets project is an audio archive published by Romantic Circles
that testifies to the continued importance of Romanticism in the contemporary poetry world. The premise of the collection is simple: we have asked practicing poets from around the world to read a Romantic-period poem that they particularly admire and that has influenced the way in which they think about their craft. The results are gathered here.
Each entry in the archive includes a literal textual transcription of the poem as it was recorded (not necessarily as it has appeared in print). Variation happens, especially in performance. We provide here only texts of exactly what the reading poet actually says on the recording.
